The Annual Open Table Tennis Tournament in Rochester organized by the Genesee Valley Table Tennis Club, sponsored by Joola USA and Salvatore's Old Fashioned Pizzaria, was fun-filled and exciting and proved to be a good testing ground for veterans who wanted a sterner examination of their seasoned game as well as for young and upcoming players in the region. The three-day tournament began with a fun-fest of age limited junior events and adult-junior doubles on Fri, Mar 27. This was followed by an intense Sat line up of events featuring enthusiastic young talent as well as the wiliest of veteran tournament players from the Upstate New York region, Pennsylvania Ohio and Ontario Canada. Sunday was match-filled with large round robin groups competing in a socially engaging as well as physically challenging test of the tournament credentials of new and experienced tournament players.
Feb 7, 2015: GVTTC members participated in a Table Tennis Exhibition at the Main Court of the Eastview Mall in Victor on two club tables. We brought in the tables before 9:00 am and stayed until after 5:00pm. A group representing the diverse membership of the club was available at all times to talk to mall shoppers about the sport and engage people in playing a few matches.
Feb 1, 2015: Our club members: Vitraag Mehta, Zhiqi Wang and Victor Liu represented the Genesee Valley Table Tennis Club at the National Collegiate Table Tennis Association regionals at RIT on Feb 1, 2015.
